The gal is Virginia Browne Faire, frequent heroine in silents and early 1930s sound oaters. Note the mention of this film as "an All Talking WESTERN".

Above is lobby card and crop/blowup from the Wally Wales starrer RIDERS OF THE CACTUS (Big 4, 1931). On the far left is Buzz Barton, and Wally Wales (later, Hal Taliaferro) is atop the white cayuse. Les Adams was able to identify the big man facing Barton as Gus Anderson, and the smiling rider next to Wales appears to be Sam J. Garrett, a champion roper of the 1930s. Les also mentioned that CACTUS and FLYING LARIATS were filmed in a week on location in Sonora, California with the exact same cast in both films.
